Halloween Ghost Tours at Fort George

Some believe that Halloween is the time of year when supernatural forces are most powerful, and the barrier between this world and the next is at its weakest. For others, it’s just the perfect time of year for a good ghost story.  Join us for an exploration of the scariest aspects of haunted Fort George. This 2-hour walking tour includes stories too frightening to be told on the summer tours, and opens a building (the Officers’ Quarters) usually off limits to the Ghost Tour.

All tickets: $20.00

Tickets must be purchased in advance. Please call the Friends of Fort George Gift Shop at 905-468-6621 to order.
